I suggest you check out this bug Bug#826771 as pointed out in another comment and if this is the same as the you have mark it as affecting you too. The more people a bug affects the higher the priority developers give to fixing it. – Warren Hill Sep 1 '13 at 14:41

you have 2 options.

  1. disable the global menu in unity. sudo apt-get remove appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-gtk appmenu-qt
  2. in gnome tweak turn off the option have file mangaer handle desktop if you don't mind not having icons on the desktop.

then, log out and login. or hit alt+f2 and enter r to restart the shell.

Yes I found it by my self it was "on" the "have file mangaer handle desktop" in gnome-tweak Thnx – Vassilis Oct 29 '11 at 11:13
Thanks, option 1 solved my problem. Although it did not go away after alt+f2, but it did after a restart. – Ian Hincks Feb 20 '12 at 22:54
